Since moving to WA I have been unable to find a job. I mean I can get a job at McDonalds but at 38 I am really not in the mood to work with a bunch of teens and I feel like I have worked too long to go back to that kind of work. I want a job that pays decent and that doesn't overrun my life with drama. Plus I need to be somewhat flexible since I have a child that I have to transport to and from school (enrolled out of district). I have a friend here who is in the same position except her kids are younger and can't be home alone. Basically we need work from home jobs or jobs that are part time and flexible. Both of us have recently gotten into eating healthier and exercising. I would really hate to have to give up the flexibility to work out without worrying about being late for something and I am enjoying eating healthy meals with my family. She has a degree in business and I have helped run several businesses and non profits. So my idea is to open a meal service and possibly add in a healthy living aspect at a later date. We would basically consult with a family to identify their likes/dislikes, allergies, health needs or concerns and then build them menu options. Whenever they needed a meal we could prepare it and/or deliver it as needed. We could also build a weekly menu plan for them and provide the option to buy it and prepare it for them if they wanted. Most of these things could be pre made and frozen so that they could crockpot it or just warm it in an oven. Some things like side items could be provided pre chopped or cooked and ready for reheating. Being military wives we also get invited to a lot of social events such as coffee socials. It sucks being the one working mom who shows up with nothing because you simply didn't have the time. I think we could put together a simple menu of appetizers and baked goods that could be used for those occasions. This is a large base so I am pretty sure we could make a decent amount doing this. Eventually both of us wish to become trainers as well so we could add in workout routines and or training sessions for people to increase the income if needed. So here is my question…….Would you use this if it was affordable?
